Background: In New York, the former American Ambassador to the United Nations, Mr. Andrew Young, has held private talks with the Israeli Foreign Minister, Moshe Dayan. The meeting -- on Wednesday (26 September) -- came soon after the controversial former Ambassador embraced and posed for photos with the U.N. Observers of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO).
SYNOPSIS: On Tuesday (25 September) Mr. Young was the guest of the Kuwaiti ambassador, Abdullah Bishara, at a dinner held in a New York Hotel. Also at the dinner was PLO envoy, Zehdi Terzi. Mr. Young was forced to resign from his job as U.N. Ambassador after an unauthorised meeting with Mr. Terzi.
But now, Mr. Young is not subject to State Department restraints against talking to PLO representatives. At the dinner, Mr. Young talked freely to Mr. Terzi and later embraced him and posed for photographs. Upstairs, in the same hotel, was Israeli Foreign Minister. The following morning, Mr. Young met Mr. Dayan to discuss his proposed tour of the Middle East.
Later, Mr. Dayan told newsmen that Mr. Young would be welcome to visit Israel -- provided he did not attempt to mediate between Israel and the PLO
